Reviews
Good Support, Holding up well
I've used the Aircast airsport for about 1.5 years now (playing tennis about 3 times / week) and they are still holding up even though there are signs of wear, so for durability I give them a 5. Support is excellent. I felt absolutely confident with my movements on the tennis court. Support rating 5. The only downside I saw is that it is a little bulky on the sides where the actual ankle support plastic rods are built in. Have to loosen the shoe quite a bit to be able to get your foot in. Wearing it was always a bit of a time consuming process and the velcro straps are not well designed. The adhesive part on the velcro is a little short specially if you have to tighten it to get a firm fit. Therefore for easy of wear, I rate it a 3.

More comfortable to wear
Much sturdier than the plastic Aircast I got from the ER. Also doesn't go all the way up my calf, so it's more comfortable to wear.

Great - fits inside your shoes!
Daughter must wear after repeated ankle sprains. Uses for college lacrosse play and loves that these braces are secure and fit in her athletic shoes and cleats. Best brace for ankles - and she has tried many.

Got it for my husband
Bought this for my husband who is a stroke survivor. Although his entire right-side was affected, his ankle has given him the most trouble. He uses this brace with both his work boots and sneakers to give extra support and to keep his ankle from rolling. He tried other braces in the past, but this is the first one that has made the biggest difference. Since some days are better than others, this ankle support has also been a plus because he can decide how tight or how loose it needs to be. The Velcro strap system also lets him choose to put more pressure in one area while keeping another area a little looser. He has been using it practically every day for the last eight months and it is holding up great.

Very good fit
I have already tried 5 braces as I begin recovery from a 3rd degree sprain. This brace offers almost the same amount of support as the air stirrup given to me at urgent care. The bonus is the strap that goes across the Achilles tendon. Having support right there made a world of difference and I have only had this brace for 6 hours. I really appreciate the amazing side supports that this brace offers not just laterally but medially also. My instability is medial so this is crucial for me. As for fit and comfort... both are outstanding. Follow the provided size guide; it's accurate. I am looking forward to wearing this when I am once again able to join in martial arts training. I am confident that this will be more than adequately supportive.

Would buy it again if I had to...
i'm pretty sure this saved my life. i broke my ankle last year and was given one of these for when i got out of the cast. i could wear it with flip flops...and it supported me when i atrophied and didn't have any calf or ankle strength. i received one from the doctor initially, but ended up buying the same exact one because it got smelly (don't judge, it's a foot and i broke my ankle in the beginning of summer).

Just what the doctor recommended
I had surgery on my left toe in May, still had pain in August. Turned out I had injured the tendon around my tibia. Finally got relief with this aircast which cost $90 in the doctor's office! Following medical advice, I've been wearing it constantly for 2 weeks, icing the ankle, taking ibuprofen. Finally, the pain is going away and I can walk with an even stride. This cast was an amazing relief from the moment I put it on. I hope I don't have to wear it too much longer, but it's clearly been the reason the tendinitis is settling down. Wear a sock over it so the velcro doesn't grab your pants.

Super convenient putting on and taking off
Really convenient and easy to take on an off. I definitely felt as though my ankle was supported. But, note that it will not fit inside of a shoe. I wore thick socks and walked everywhere in it

Very stable
This is probably the best ankle stabilizer on the market. After undergoing Ankle Replacement surgery, I found I needed to keep my ankle from 'wobbling' and this works well. It allows my foot to move forward and backwards without teetering. My only complaint, giving it 4 Stars, is that they put the 'sticky' side of Velcro on the outside where it 'catches' on every fabric it comes in contact with or scratches any skin it touches. I wish they had just reversed the Velcro because it's over the whole top of the brace. It would work just as well if they made the strap with the 'sticky' side of Velcro. To make sure it doesn't ruin my clothes, I have to wear a sock over it..., then the sock gets STUCK to the brace! I wish they would do this minor change for a major hassle.

I use this for all different sports
My doctor said this good for playing golf, tennis, and racquetball so I decided to try it as my last one had finally worn out. My foot/ankle falls within a size medium so I bought the Aircast sport ankle brace to give it a try. It's been more supportive than the previous lace-up I had. It's not bulky at all and fits inside my shoes easily. The support around the ankle is just what my ankle needs to stay protected when I'm twisting and turning on it.

Fits very well as I expected...
After reading each ankle brace review I decided to buy one finally for my unstable ankle which has been giving me more pain over the last 6 months. The straps were very easy for me since I also have arthritic hands. The fit was nice, snug, and good compression without being too tight. Very pleased with this purchase.

Comfortable, easily adjustable
My physician gave me this brace to wear after I finished recovering from an achilles tendon rupture surgery. It has a slip on style and easily adjusts. It feels good with a sock on the foot, and has allowed me tor return to work without having heel pain. It's perfect for a variety of situations or conditions where you need a n ankle brace.

Five Stars
I love these ankle braces. I've suffered many ankle injuries over the years. After trying out many different kinds of protective support for my ankle, I found that this particular one was the most supportive and comfortable for my needs. The sizing chart was spot on and helped me decide the size medium was the correct one for my ankle.

Life changer.
This has really helped me. I sprained my ankle 3 weeks ago, but I have no choice but to walk and move around during the day. Before I got this I was using an ace bandage, and I kept rolling my ankle when I stepped wrong. I wear a size 12 Men's shoe, and have muscular calves. I got a large and it fits great. The trick is to put the underneath part where you want it, and then stretch the side over to cover your ankle and attach the bottom velcro. I haven't rolled my ankle even once since starting to wear this, and my ankle isn't nearly as sore as it used to be at the end of the day. Life changer.

Back to my game
After a severe sprain this thing will get you back on the tennis court allowing for good range of movement and good support to help prevent re-injury. I've bought 2 of these after each sprain. I usually wear them for a few months after rolling it so they last maybe 50+ uses before they begin to show wear.

Great purchase
I'm very pleased with my new Aircast ankle brace. I have ankles like an old lady and I roll them often. I liked my new ankle brace so much I ordered another air cast for my other ankle. Comfortable, reliable and supportive are just a few ways to describe this awesome ankle brace.

Excellent product and service
Had my Air-Stirrup order sent to my US address at Sumas, WA and picked up parcel on our way through to Nanaimo. This is definitely the way to go, much cheaper than buying from a Canadian source or shipping by courier to Canada. In both these ways we are getting ripped off. The Canadian price from a supplier was $100.00 each and at DME it was $34.00 each, go figure. Fits great!

Helping with previous fracture
I'm currently doing physical therapy due to a previous lateral fracture that has made the muscles in my left ankle weak. My therapist recommended this brace after he saw the unstable one I had. I've been using it for a few days now and I've really noticed how much it helps. I do a lot of sports/walking/running and this brace has helped take away a lot of the pain. It helps me walk straight which is really helpful and keeps me from rolling my ankle I've noticed a lot of positive things that this brace has done for me and I would definitely recommend buying it.

Best ankle brace for basketball
My son severely sprained his ankle playing basketball in middle school. He tore ligaments (verified by an MRI) and was told by an orthopedic surgeon to rest it for a month and then use the Aircast Airsport ankle brace every time he stepped into the gym. He has been doing that ever since on both ankles and has never had anything more than a very, very slight sprain if he didn't put them on tight enough. The braces are comfortable, don't slow him down and go on and off easily with the velcro fasteners. I have lost count of how many of these he has worn out over that last six years given that he plays basketball at least five days a week for a couple of hours per day. Some of his teammates use them as well.

Way Awesome
My fourth set of these. I've used Active Ankles for years as a volleyball player and coach, which are fine. But now I much prefer these Aircast for comfort and ease of adjustment during matches. Good protection, superior comfort, highly recommended.

Sprained Ankle
I have sprained my ankle repeated over the years and got these based on my doctor's advise. I like the rear entry which makes them easy to fasten unlike other lace up styles. The air cells give me great support on the sides of my ankle. I use them whenever I play tennis. I'll never try any other brace!
